Some Members of Parliament have begun lobbying for creation of more constituencies to follow the increase in the number of districts.
The legislators mainly from districts with one county want the constituencies divided to have more representation in Parliament.
Loy Kiryapwo, the Budaka County MP one of the proponents of the new constituencies says she represents a bigger population yet she gets the same resources like constituencies with smaller population.
Similarly Charles Olweny, the Usuk county MP in Katakwi District feels the electoral commission should have subdivided his constituency after the last population census in 2002.
// Cue in iThe current number of sub counties #.
Cue # we need a second countyi //
The 8th Parliament currently comprises of: 215 Constituencies but the number could double once the Electoral commission demarcates the constituencies as demanded by parliamentarians.
The Electoral Commission is required under the constitution to review constituencies with in twelve months after a national census has been held.
Freddy Ruhindi, the Deputy Attorney General however says the new constituencies may not be created soon due to what he calls technical constraints
//Cue In iI really don't think we are now ...
Cue out# when we can address that matteri//
There is a public outcry against the increasing size of Parliament which increases the cost of public administration.
